More information needed to identify painting

The owner of this painting says it’s by artist Murray MacDonald, circa 1808. [Submitted Photo]

Q: Thank you for your most interesting articles in The Gainesville Sun, I look forward to Saturday’s paper. I hope that you will be able to identify

this beautiful painting by Murray MacDonald 1808. My late motherin-law wished for me to have it. I wonder if you could identify the painting and if there is a value to it. I appreciate any information that you may be able to help me with. Thanking you. — B.R., internet A: I found several listings for

artists named Murray MacDonald but none as early as the date 1808 that you mention in your letter. Are you sure about the 1808? Is it on your painting? There is a Murray William MacDonald, 1898– 1991, British listed as a landscape painter of farms, cattle, etc. In order to help further I need better photographs including the signature, date, and of the back of the painting as well. Q: I read and enjoy your article every Saturday in the newspaper. I have my dad’s World War II uniform, medals, a sword, a Japanese machine gun camera from an airplane shot down near them in the Philippines with proper paperwork with it and his photograph album. What museum

would you suggest I donate it all too as I really do not want to sell it? How would I get it to them? Your suggestions are appreciated. Thank you. — J.A., internet A: The Veterans Services office is looking for donations of veterans’ war memorabilia for display in cabinets in their offices. I suggest you contact Jeffrey Askew, he is the Veterans Services officer for Marion County. The phone number is 671-8427. His email is Jeffrey.Askew@marioncountyfl.org. Let us know how things work out.  Q: I am writing to inquire about a few items I have. One is an old typewriter, a SmithCorona Skywriter made in England. Also, an old

reel-to-reel 8 mm projector made by Bell and Howell. I am happy to send pictures if there might be some interest in them. And finally, I have a couple of strange items, several never-opened bottles of Sun-Drop, a citrus soda that apparently a relative got at a NASCAR event. Odd, I know. I am just trying to decide if we should love them, list them, or trash them. Can you help with this? — M.G., internet A: There is no specific collector interest in your typewriter and movie projector. The Smith Corona can be found for sale at a variety of prices for those who like to use the old manual typewriters. To sell the one you have, if it is in excellent condition, do a Google search

and then contact the seller you find priced at the highest level and see if they would like to buy yours. Good luck but expect disappointment. In the bottle collecting world there is some interest in soda pop bottles but at very low values. To check further check out American Bottle Auctions. The website is www. americanbottle.com. Otherwise a donation to a charity of your choice might be a good idea. — Ocala-based John Sikorski has more than 35 years of experience as an antiques adviser, consultant and broker.

GARDENING

Enhancements for mid-summer turf By David Holmes Tribune News Service (TNS)

One day last summer I was evaluating the condition of my lawn. Predominantly St. Augustine grass, it looked okay as lawns go — there were no major disease or insect problems threatening to kill off the grass. Still there were a few bare spots here and there and a couple areas where pesky Bermudagrass was threatening to take over. I wondered what mid-summer treatments I could employ to make the ordinary a little more spectacular. It is the time of year when grass is growing the fastest, driven by frequent rains, warm temperatures and long periods of daylight, so if you are thinking of tweaking your lawn this is a good time to do it. We still have a couple months for grass to recover in preparation for winter dormancy. What management strategies should be employed to take advantage of the summer weather? First on the list are bare spots. Complete turf coverage is important not only for aesthetics, but is necessary

to insure full nutrient uptake. Try to determine what caused bare patches in the first place and be sure the problem is corrected before installing any new sod. In my case the backyard has a lot of shade and while St. Augustine will grow in shade it isn’t the greatest thing for it. Shade can be lessened somewhat by thinning the tree canopy, which is not a bad thing with the heaviest part of hurricane season still looming. A little thinning allows a lot more light penetration which results in denser grass. Mower blades should also be raised about an inch higher when cutting in shade. This reserves more leaf blade to participate in the photosynthesis process. If we receive the typical rainfall patterns in July you may not need to water any new turf patches, but keep an eye on the weather and if we have a period of more than a day with no rain be sure to hand water any newly installed patches. Keep a watchful eye on this until turf establishes new roots, about four to six weeks. Next on my list was the Bermuda problem. I had some areas where Bermuda was

becoming the predominant turf. I identified these, flagged them and sprayed out total grass plots in areas. A couple weeks later, when I was sure the Bermuda was dead, I identified some St. Augustine grass in a shady area of the lawn that hadn’t been impacted by the Bermuda invasion and transplanted it into the bare areas. Be sure to bury it at the proper level so the grass fills in and won’t be scalped by the mower later. Level ground is critical to ensuring a uniform cut. Remember that turf renovation is a long process and that it will take some time before it begins to look good again. Grass that was transplanted last summer is only now beginning to fill in all the bare spots. It has taken over a year of careful management to get full St. Augustine with minimal Bermuda. Perhaps bare spots are the result of insect or disease damage. If this is old damage and control of the insect or disease has been taken care of replacement now is an option. Be sure no insects are present before installing any new turf patches. Active pest infestations should be controlled first and

may delay installation of supplemental turf until late summer. This can be done, but will present additional challenges in getting turf established as we move toward fall and grass growth begins to slow. Check mowing practices to be sure you are employing the proper strategy for your type of grass. Realize that management strategies differ depending on the turf cultivar. Zoysia grass should be mowed to an inch and a half then cut again when it reaches 2 and a half inches. This is much different than the guidelines for St. Augustine grass, which recommends cutting to 3 inches, then letting it grow to 4 inches. Note that in this summer period of rapid growth it may be necessary to mow as often as every five days, depending on rainfall. Sharp mower blades are an important element in turf condition and will probably need to be sharpened three or four times during the season. I have found it helpful to buy a second set of blades so that a sharpened set is always ready for installation. Zoysia lawns have

become increasingly popular over the past 20 years and these present some management challenges unique to this grass. Thatch, a buildup of living and dead stems, stolons, rhizomes and roots between the green vegetation and the soil surface may become a problem in St. Augustine and Zoysia lawns. Too much thatch limits penetration of moisture and nutrients and provides good habitat for undesirable insects. A half-inch layer of thatch is normal, but when the amount of thatch grows much beyond this, issues may arise. You can easily check the thatch level by removing a 1 foot by 1 foot soil square and examining the soil profile. If the thatch layer is approaching an inch thick, consider vertical mowing as a means of thatch reduction. Vertical mowing, or verticutting, employs blades which slice through the grass on a vertical (up and down) axis a couple inches into the soil. This cuts stolons, removes some of the thatch and creates an entry for moisture and nutrients to reach the root system. While it is possible to rent a machine

for verticutting, those wishing to employ this practice for a first time should try a small area in the back yard and let it grow back before moving on to areas visible from curbside. Understand that verticutting severely damages the grass for a few weeks until it begins to recover. Verticut in one direction only and lightly rake out excessive grass particles. Immediately after verticutting, set mover blades to the highest level and make a pass over the treated area. Water the dethatched lawn immediately to avoid dehydration of any exposed roots and supplement summer rains for a couple weeks if we have a droughty period. Probably a good way to think about verticuting is a poor looking turf in the short term, but fantastic looking turf in the long run because it enhances conditions for nutrient uptake. As we enter mid-July, there is still a window of opportunity to prepare your lawn for a good appearance next spring and summer. This time will pass in the next couple weeks and one must act quickly to take advantage of the season.

After you’ve landed on a purpose, think through how you want the shelves to fit into your space and the color palette you want to highlight. Do you want them to add texture but blend in? Consider monochromatic accents and accessories that coordinate with your space. Do you want your shelves to pop? Pull from the other colors in the room and find bold pieces. Tie your space and shelves together by adding accessories that pick up other elements in the room. For example, a woven basket would pick up the colors and textures in a sisal or jute rug.

aesthetic, it’s time to find the perfect pieces. Start by shopping your own home. You’re bound to find at least a piece or two to get yourself started. Look for a variety of shapes, sizes and textures to keep your shelves visually balanced. Accessories we often use include books (of course!), art, baskets and small trays, vessels and bowls of all kinds, floral and greenery arrangements and things like picture frames for sentimental moments. Don’t forget: Tall accents can be difficult to find but are essential to adding movement and drawing your eyes around your space.

Once you have collected all your accessories, lay them out so you can see

I like to start with my largest and tallest pieces first. Spread them throughout your shelves, making sure no two like pieces (or like-sized pieces) are directly next to each other vertically or horizontally. From there, begin to fill in each shelf, placing medium-sized pieces throughout. Stack books on their sides and top them off with an accent to add height. Push art against the back wall of the shelf to create depth or pop a smaller piece into a tabletop easel to make it jump out.

HOT PROPERTY

Playing musical chairs in Encino

Pete Wentz of Fall Out Bay is seeking $2.395 million for his five-bedroom home in the Amestoy Estates neighborhood in Los Angeles. [Alexis Adams/TNS]

By Neal J. Leitereg and Jack Flemming Los Angeles Times (TNS)

LOS ANGELES — Half a decade is plenty for Pete Wentz, who has put his Encino home of five years on the market for $2.395 million. The house has been a hot spot for musicians over the years; Wentz bought it from R&B singer-songwriter Eric Benet for $1.965 million in 2014, records show. That was around the same time Wentz sold

his old place in Studio City for $1.23 million. Built in the 1950s and remodeled a decade ago, the gated property sits on roughly half an acre in Amestoy Estates. There are a palm-lined motor court in the front and a resort-like backyard with a basketball court, saltwater pool and spa under hanging lights. Arched doorways and hardwood floors fill the single-story floor plan, which holds five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in 4,091

square feet. Beamed ceilings top the living room, gourmet kitchen and master suite, and the master also adds a spa tub and sauna. Outside, gardens and citrus trees bring a little color to the hedge-lined grounds. Wentz, 40, is best known as the lyricist and bassist for Grammynominated pop-punk band Fall Out Boy, which released its seventh studio album, “Mania,” last year. In addition, he co-founded record label DCD2 Records with bandmate Patrick Stump in 2005. NO LONGER A FREE AGENT NBA superstar Kevin Durant has wrapped up some business in Malibu, selling his oceanfront home on Broad Beach for $12.15 million. Accounting for real estate commissions and other fees, the sale comes out as a bit of a wash for the 10-time all-star. He bought the place last year for $12.05 million, the Los Angeles Times previously

reported in April. Set off of a private and gated street, the multilevel house was recently remodeled and features 5,100 square feet of contemporary living space. High ceilings, skylights and French oak floors are among details of note. Sliding walls of glass take in ocean views on three levels. Living spaces include a living room with a fireplace, a dining area, a center-island kitchen, a home theater, four bedrooms and six bathrooms. A separate media room features a glass-enclosed wine wall. There’s also an elevator servicing each floor. An outdoor spa and dining patio finish off the indoor-outdoor setting. A small wooden staircase descends from the main patio area directly to a sandy cove. Durant, 30, is expected to miss the entire 2019-20 season after rupturing his Achilles’ tendon during the NBA Finals. The former NBA MVP recently agreed to

a four-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets worth $164 million, teaming up with fellow stars Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan. In 78 games for the Warriors last year, the high-scoring forward averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists. WHOLE LOTTA SELLIN’ GOIN’ ON A wop bop alu bop, a wop bam ... gone? That’s the word in Los Angeles’ Lafayette Square neighborhood, where the one-time home of rock ‘n’ roll icon Little Richard has sold for $1.878 million. Built in 1923, the Spanish Revival-style home was purchased by Richard in the 1950s for himself and his mother, Leva Mae Stewart. During his ownership, the two-story house was “an open house” for entertainers, with James Brown, Jackie Williams, Etta James and the Coasters among those making visits, according to the biography “The Life and Times of Little Richard.” Stewart’s

A sunlit den/family room with garden views sits off the living room area. A period-vibe kitchen, a dining room and four bedrooms also lie within about 3,300 square feet of living space. The three bathrooms were previously restored. Richard, born Richard Penniman in 1932, has scores of hits including “Good Golly Miss Molly,” “Long Tall Sally” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ (Goin’ On).” Known for his flamboyant energy and style, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
